Video Matsuri is an annual short film contest for students.

Entries are open for Australian and New Zealand students, and the entries are required to be

  • no longer than 3 minutes
  • include the Japanese language
  • include a featured item of the year

There are no restrictions on style or theme, as long as it is age appropriate. You can produce a comedy, a drama, a documentary; you can animate it, you can claymation it – the sky’s the limit! So why not enter and combine your Japanese ability with your creativity and acting skills?

The contest opens in Term 1 and closes at the end of Term 3 each year.
